    Apple's Chinese Memory Search: Big Boost to China's Ambitions?

    I mentioned earlier that Craig Ellis of B. Riley & Co. today trumpeted three very good signs for the memory-chip industry, including DRAM and NAND, and its impact on chip equipment suppliers KLA-Tencor (KLAC), Applied Materials (AMAT) and Lam Research (LRCX). The Nikkei’s Cheng Ting-Fang relates that Apple has been talking to Yangtze Memory Technologies, a Chinese state-backed operation, to buy NAND parts sometime in 2019, without citing sources. Ellis doesn’t see a potential China deal as a threat to Micron Technology (MU) and other memory-chip producers, but he does see it as a big boost the equipment makers — if it happens: We’re finally starting to get some of the equipment demand positives we’ve been awaiting for the past year from a slew of China mega projects we believe are under-modeled and under-appreciated in SS CY18-20 forecasts.

    KLA Dividend Hike a Big Endorsement of the Memory Chip Biz, Says B Riley

    This is KLA’s biggest-ever dividend increase, notes Ellis, and it signals the health in the industry, and bodes well for capital returns, he thinks, "kicking off a wave of broader sector excess cash return moves we expect can be followed by LRCX and AMAT but with a differing stock repurchase and/or dividend increase allocations." The move from 2.3% current yield on KLA’s dividend to 2.9% is a big deal, 1.2 points ahead of the S&P 500’s average 1.8% And there’s more to come next year, he thinks: The further and essential context is the dividend was hiked just six months ago from $0.54 to $0.59 which means a +39% Y/Y increase when paid this June. Indeed, even with the dividend increase baked in, cash could rise $400-$600M per year in the next few years absent share buy-backs or a follow-on hike or both, so we suspect balanced cash return is a card KLAC can continue to play, as it has decade to date even as it leaves abundant wiggle room for substantial increases in early 2019.

    [$$] 3 Tech Stocks That Not Everyone Else Is Buying

    If you’re looking for a sure thing in tech stocks these days, it seems you could do worse than shares of a couple of the biggest chip equipment makers, the companies that provide the tools to Intel and others to fabricate semiconductors. Three great picks to consider are automotive-parts supplier Aptiv (APTV), European semiconductor maker STMicroelectronics (STM), and Japanese motor maker Nidec (6594.Japan). Last week, shares of Lam Research (LRCX) and KLA-Tencor (KLAC), among the top chip equipment vendors, actually saw their shares decline slightly despite reporting healthy results.

    KLA-Tencor Less Flashy Than Lam, But Some Like That

    Shares of chip equipment vendor KLA-Tencor (KLAC) are up 52 cents at $113.59, continuing yesterday evening’s after-hours gains, following fiscal Q2 revenue and profit that both topped analysts' expectations, but a forecast for this quarter that was below consensus. The bulls on KLA are calling the company more “modest” than Lam, but still deserving of praise. The bears, however, are taking KLA at its word and focusing on its relatively slower growth. Morningstar’s Abhinav Davuluri, who thinks Lam is overvalued, thinks KLA is actually undervalued.
